How Long Do Appliances Last?

When good quality electrical appliances are cared for properly, they can last for decades. Don’t worry, your fridge will be there to serve you cold beverages for years to come. But when the time comes to replace your appliance, having funds saved up will reduce any unwanted stress. Below, we take a look at the lifespans of some of the most common electrical appliances.

Hot Water Systems

Your hot water heater can last anywhere from 10-15 years but they are expensive to replace. As a must-have appliance, it is important to look after your electric hot water systems with regular maintenance and servicing. Contact our team at Metropolitan Plumbing for more information. We recommend that you service your system annually.

Fridges

Australians love to enjoy a cold beer after work, but what would you do if that beer wasn’t cold? When your fridge starts to go, you will notice its ability to cool food and beverages diminish. Generally, refrigeration systems usually last anywhere from 13-16 years.

Microwaves

Microwaves are relatively affordable appliances and can last anywhere up to nine years, but it is still a hassle when your microwave breaks down unexpectedly. You can extend the life of your microwave by using a surge protector, cleaning it regularly and remembering not to place foreign objects in it.

Washing Machines

The washing machine is one of the most commonly used household appliances, leaving them more susceptible to wear and tear. Expect your current washing machine to last anywhere from 10-15 years, so start saving in advance.

Air Conditioners

A well-cared for AC system can last anywhere from 10-15 years. Our friends over at Metropolitan Air Conditioning, recommend servicing and cleaning your system annually.
